The gross total gaming revenue — slot machines and table games revenue combined — for Pennsylvania's 12 casinos exceeded $3.2 billion in 2016, up slightly more than 1 percent over 2015, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Three of Philadelphia region's four casinos saw year-over-year increases in total gaming revenue: Parx Casino, Valley Forge Casino Resort and Sugarhouse Casino, which had the biggest year-over-year gains across Pennsylvania.

SugarHouse Casino led the state in terms of growth from 2016 over 2015. SugarHouse's total gaming revenue in 2016 was nearly $297.7 million, a 10.7 percent year-over-year increase.
